[applause] i have a favorite verse in one of our 2345rb8 hems, america the beautiful. in that hem him we talk about the mountains majesty and all the characters of our land but there is a verse that touches me more deeply that says heroes proved in liberating strife who more than self-their country love and mercy more than life. what our veterans and members of the armed forces raise your hand so we can recognize you? [applause] thank you. it is part of the american national character to live for things bigger than yourself. some do that in extraordinary ways, invisible ways, other do it in meaningful ways in their lives and family's life. my sister is a hero to me

you. overall, mr. romney, governor romney at the time, he left the state with debt. you hear how we set up a slush fund and all these great things he did for the state, which are totally untrue. i have to say, i have lived in new hampshire and a town over from where his vacation home is. the campaign itself, where he is changing positions it, from the time he was governor of massachusetts from what he is saying today, he has totally changed his whole direction. he was pro-life when he was the governor in massachusetts and now he is -- or he was not pro- life back then, and now he's pro-life. guest: certainly, candidates, as they go through time, can. change can i think someone might say the president, you could hold out certain examples of the president's record. changes positions. certainly between next tuesday and inauguration day, no matter who wins, you might see some curbing of some of these positions that were taken during the campaign. it's just a guess. but some of these things will change over time it. candidates will take a step back sometimes from their harder position th
four years. my concern is with mr. romney. he is going to do big change. i am not sure what that change is going to be. he keeps changing what he says. i am concerned with mitt romney and paul ryan. there are lots of issues and things that i do not think forever answer directly. host: let's hear from charles. if you are in of ohio were so much of the action is unfolding. caller: that is true. host: what is it like? have been out to any campaign event? caller: i have not. i get a lot of calls. first of all, where is the church in defending moral issues? we cannot expect our politicians to take on this fight it the church is only passive. what is our moral compass that our politics are more important than our faith? our faith should decide how we boats. -- vote. we tried to put got out of the white house, i think we're asking for serious problems. mine is a morally based. host: joseph, independent caller. caller: when you consider mitt romney, he has been running since the day his father lost the election. knowing this, you would think he would have the decency to have a one of his sons j

with the container. inside the container was the flag in perfect condition. that's it on the flag pole next to mr. romney. i pulled out the flag. it was as if electricity was running through my arms. i think of the people who lived their lives for more than themselves. think of our men and women, their willingness to walk in danger's way for us. for liberty and freedom. it is part of the american character to give of oneself for something greater. the patriots -- who serve in the military -- and wh oserve in the -- who serve at home. homes. my sister, lynn, is in her 70's with 8 children. they're all married with kids of their own. the youngest, jeffrey, has downs syndrome. he is 43 now. her husband died years ago and she is with jeffrey. she has spent 43 years to making sure his life is as full and complete as it can possibly be. a hero, to me. i think of the single moms across the country who are saving so they can have a good meal on the table at the end of the day. i think of the men and women working two jobs. they wrok two jobs so their kids can have the clothes others have. and the couples
